  • Drupal is to web development as Powerpoint is to design

    24 Feb 2015 | 4:21 pm
    I was recently talking with a friend about how hard it is to find a good Drupal developer. While Drupal is the second-most widely used CMS, finding developers who know how to work with it properly is really challenging. I think there are three reasons for this. Drupal is so ubiquitous that most PHP developers have had at least some level of exposure to it. You can get a lot done in Drupal without knowing what you are doing. Most of the people hiring Drupal developers are not able to evaluate the quality of the work.In thinking about this, an analogy came to mind:Drupal is to web development…

But the rental lodging site is doing something that will delight analysts a whole lot more. Today it announced that it is open sourcing Airpal, an internally developed web-based query execution tool that leverages Facebook’s PrestoDB to facilitate data analysis. It puts data scientist-like powers into more hands, and that’s not just talk. One-third of Airbnb employees have issued a query using the tool. Read full story... Follow us on Twitter Join free…

  • Rediscovering Private Chat

    8 Jan 2015 | 5:31 am
    A few weeks ago, I moved my development team from Skype to HipChat for chat-based collaboration.  All the buzz around this new breed of collaboration services (such as HipChat, Slack, and Flowdock) was making me curious.  I had used private chat room technology like IRC and Jabber in the past with mixed results.  I also used to work for a company that made a product called MindAlign (which looks like it has been frozen in time since 2004).  In every case, these services were initially popular and then people drifted away to other tools such as AOL Instant Messenger (AIM),…

    Here is a little programming oddity that we ran across yesterday.onDemand has a number of downloadable Excel reports. To generate a useful Excel file, it is important to tell the Excel library what data type to make each cell. To facilitate this, we had a little utility function called is_float:def is_float(data): try: float(data) return True except Exception: return FalseThat seemed reasonable enough and it worked fine for quite some time. But then we had this customer named Nan (thanks for the business Nan!). The problem with the name Nan is that float('Nan') doesn't return a ValueError…
